Ellerman Villa

Sloped site in Bantry Bay

Principles

Heavy boulder base to reflect site context.

Tree and green middle level with large overhangs and light filtering through branching pergolas.

Top canopy perched above giving views of the Atlantic seaboard below.

Concepts

Architecture becomes a garden event space expressing its function and relation to context through mass.

As views and relationships increase each level shreds off its solidity to become more transparent.
